Giovanni: A turn of the century poster by Giuseppe Palanti, 1900. This dramatic two sheet poster advertises a production of Giovanni Frangipani by Umberto Bonmartini.
Italian born Palanti (1881-1946) was studying the applied arts when he attended the 1900 expo in Paris. He is said to have been most impressed with the pavilion featuring advertising posters - an experience crucial to his artistic career from that point forward.
